II Chronicles 11:15 And he ordained him priests for the high places, and for the devils, and for the calves which he had made.
I knew this but was still shocked to read it again. Rehoboam the king ordained priests for the idols, the demons that the pagans had left in his kingdom. Maybe he did it thinking he could slowly bring them to the truth, though that doesn’t appear to be what happened but he did ordain priests for the devils.
Do you see that? How could the king of God’s people do such a thing. How could a man of God not stand strong and firm against false gods. Since when do we want to please people so much that we would stoop this low.
Go read the passage and let it break your heart like it has mine!
